LUCY CREEK. Lucy (Big Lucy) Creek, a spring-fed stream, rises east of Knight Mountain and 5½ miles southeast of Lometa in south central Lampasas County (at 31°09' N, 98°20' W) and runs southeast for 18½ miles to its mouth (at 31°07' N, 98°03' W) on the Lampasas River, four miles northwest of Kempner. The stream, which is intermittent in its upper and lower reaches, crosses an area of the Grand Prairie characterized by steep slopes and limestone benches, which give a stairstep appearance to the landscape. Soils in the area are generally shallow sandy and clay loams, and the vegetation consists primarily of open stands of oak, live oak, mesquite, and juniper.
